reports that they have received some new listings found on a Wal-Mart computer. The Ford Mustang figure is also included in the listing: "TRA ALT FORD MUSTAN - 81336 (????)." It is not known if whether or not the Mustang figure is re-release of Grimlock or Wheeljack, or a repaint or retooling of the figure. The rest of the listing also confirms the Honda Civic figure that was announced at Toy Fair UK last month: "TRA ALT HONDA CIVIC - 81351." Check out Cosmic Rust
for the rest of the Wal-Mart listings and thanks go out to Powered Convoy of the TFans
board for the heads up.
Kaye of Inside Pulse has posted his weekly edition of Cybertron Enquirer
with some interesting news. First: the most interesting rumor: Kaye's sources is that the next figure in 2006 will be based off of the Cadillac XLR. There is no indication as to what character it will be, but Kaye says it will be released before the Rumble figure (Honda Civic). Read about the Jaguar (XK?) figure in the full article
This is interesting note comes in from a viewer
I work for a packaging company and occassionally I come across mock packages for new items. Just wanted to let you know that I saw the new Heroes of Cybertron packaging today as well as some new packaging for the Alternators line. The box is similar in size, with a bigger window along the tob and front. the left side of the bubble also curves like this '(' instead of the squared off edging. Graphics are similar to the HOC line. These didn't have the actual toys in them, but rather cardboard mock-ups of two new figures - Prowl and Skids! Sorry, I cannot get pictures from the sample room, but let me know if there are any details I can track down for you!
member bigds9fan has posted a rather interesting image here
of what could very well be Alternator Prowl, in the form of a police decaled Acura RSX, which is commonly seen in Japan. Read on for more about this interesting find.
According to Hasbro UK, they won't be releasing anymore of the Alternators range in the UK, they released Smokescreen had plans to release Sideswipe but no retailers wanted to sell them so they have been dropped from being released.
There is a eBay UK Auction showing us the first pictures of the possible new Prototype for Alternators "Meister" check the ebay auction here
